If it comes new with 4.4.2 and of course s on, firewater won't work because it won't be able to get through the locked bootloader to modify files with the temp root method.

If it's a tmobile or att version you can unlock the bootloader via HTC dev and then firewater will work to get you s off since you won't need the temp root method.
